When we first announced BrewHacks, we almost broke the internet! (Go figure, we all love hacking and beer) To guarantee a high energy hackathon filled with the most creative developers in the game, BrewHacks participants must apply.

 
 

WHAT'S A BREW HACKATHON?

 

ZX Ventures & Alley bring you BrewHacks, where we reimagine and reinvent the relationship between beer and people. We’ll give developers inspiration to innovate and an opportunity to push boundaries and think about drinking beer in a way that most people never have before. Come help us shape 21st century convenience to enhance the way people experience beer.
